I needed a gluten free version, so i adapted a little. I omitted the rolled Oates and the flour for puffed rice. I also swapped the milk for protein powder (thanks Nancye). Added coconut and very yummy. I had to add an extra egg white and used golden syrup as i had no honey. - 9/15/12
I'm taking them on a long trip coming up. They aren't yummy, but for me that is great as I won't be tempted to overeat them like purchased "nutrition" bars. I didn't have apricots or cherries, used dates & cranberries. SORRY ABOUT RATING, I MEANT TO RATE IT HIGHER, HIT WRONG STAR, CAN'T CHANGE IT! - 1/21/10
